If you want to call us and ask how to put together an arrangement, use floral foam, or floral care all you need to do is pick up the phone and give us a ring.

I haven’t encountered many people who have been as straightforward and helpful as you have, and I really can’t express how much that means to me! It is seriously because of your help and information that I will be ordering my flowers from you guys. I wouldn’t have been brave enough to risk ordering flowers online if it wasn’t for your help.”– Stephanie B.

This look is really simple to pull off. Although the flowers are at the more expensive end of the spectrum they are still a lot more affordable if you DIY! Getting your flowers at wholesale prices by ordering the flowers online is the best way to go! All you need to pull off this look are white peonies, light pink peonies, and peach garden roses.

To really save some money and make this DIY bouquet one you can afford her are some tips. Use white roses and spray roses as the majority of the bouquet instead of the white peony while adding the light pink peony and peach garden roses as an accents. Another great way to cut costs is to add some more greenery to this mixture. Do not worry about shape too much, the circular shape of roses and peonies will help make a well balance bouquet.

For even more color swap out the white roses with something colorful like hot pink, orange, or green! You can also use a hanging ribbon to make a sophisticated look out of a DIY project!

There are a million styles of wedding bouquets and so many are so amazing that it is really hard to only pick one style. I totally get that. Well I say you should have your cake and eat the whole thing too!! There is nothing wrong with mixing and matching bridesmaids bouquets to get all of your favorite bouquet designs onto the isle with you. Once again you get to really texturize your wedding (yes I made that word up – but you get it). Texture, texture, texture….really it’s huge in current wedding trends. So once again trends are in your favor DIY Bride. You get to have multiple styles that you love while adding texture to your color scheme. Check out this wedding with multiple bouquet styles, what do you think?

The flowers are described on Style Me Pretty, “…Chandra (had) the time to create a different bouquet composed of a single type of flower for each of her nine bridesmaids, with all nine types  included in her bridal bouquet”

Another great reason for varying bouquets is that you do not have to worry about all your bouquets looking the same, which really takes a lot of the pressure off the DIY process. You no longer need to worry that each one is perfectly the same and symmetrical because they are all uniquely their own.

The point is that your bridesmaid’s bouquets are a choice that you have to make for your wedding, but the choices is not limited to one style/ cookie cutter idea. These monochromatic bunched flower bouquets are perfect for any wedding color. You can pick flowers just like you pick bridesmaid’s dresses, depending on what each bride likes or you can pick a bunch of styles you like best and let each bride choose which one they want.

What do you think? Are you more traditional and want to stick with all the same type of bridesmaid’s bouquets?
